First, a poster for the wonderful Vera Project. It's the third in a series of posters for them to promote their "Live From Our Living Room" series. The poster will be screen printed later, so I kept it to three colors, and as usual...animals doing human things!
Next, I designed a logo for a podcast entitled "Grief/Relief" with Moe Provencher.
Even though the Mariners were yet again absent from this year's playoffs and World Series, I still watched most of the post season on TV. I found myself rooting for the Houston Astros and couldn't help but work on a little Sad Astros illustration during their painful defeat.
I wanted to liven up the coffee bags at Porchlight, so i redesigned the labels, started using matte black bags and gave them a handsome classic look. Here are the new labels:
More Porchlight design stuff: I updated our light box with a real punny good time.
This poster is for the nice folks at Do206 and their second annual Seattle On Ice show. The idea of the show is to transform the venue into a snowglobe, so this design was only fitting. Coincidentally, Cumulus and All Star Opera are both bands that I've designed for in the past.
A month or two ago, Heritage Distilling Co. got in touch about making some pins for them. They have 5 locations in Washington, advertise with the Seattle Mariners, and make a brown sugar bourbon that tastes like Christmas. I designed two pins and backers for them. The gold pin is their still and the bottle is the aforementioned brown sugar bourbon.
Early in the month I took a very brief solo trip to Big Sur and San Simeon--and as always I brought my camera and stayed in a motel on Highway 1. In the two-and-a-half days I was there, I went on some hikes, read books and took photos. Most of my favorite photos of the month came from that trip. On the way back to the San Jose airport, my flight was delayed, so I stopped in Monterey. While I was there I stumbled upon the coolest pool I have ever seen. It had a drastic window looking out on the parking lot and a sloping ceiling. At first I took some exterior photos and finally decided to ask the kid at the front desk if I could go in and take photos. He generously let me in and now I wish I had swam in it while I had the chance.
